Stable and agile during change

Old knowledge for new strength and flexibility in the digital age

Do you sometimes ask yourself

  • “How do I personally deal with the increasing digitization?”
  • “How can I assert myself in times of ever faster change while remaining healthy and fit?”

Do you increasingly want a break from everyday life, a ‘reset’ button for a carefree reboot?

If you answer only one of these questions with ‘yes’, then this 5-day retreat is just right for you.

Indigenous peoples, whether in the European Alps or in North America, who have always had to survive under harsh conditions, have always drawn from nature as a source of strength and inspiration. Once a year, they retreated into nature to shake off the dust of everyday life that confused their senses.

They allowed themselves to BE instead of do. This way, they gained new strength for everyday life and clarity about what was right and meaningful to them. Make use of this wisdom for your own new beginning and your goals. Let go of the old, breathe deeply, and set a conscious new beginning. With this ancient knowledge you will find more balance to feel joy, clarity and meaning in your actions.

This 5-day retreat

  • gives you deep relaxation and serenity, through genuine intensive encounter with nature on all sensory levels
  • allows for enough time and space to organize your thoughts and gain clarity
  • is inspiration to further develop personal issues
  • promotes your sound grounding for getting back to earth
  • sharpens your senses to cope with the ever-increasing impact of digitization.

We will in and with nature, surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes, a lot,

  • taking small hikes
  • recharging your batteries at beautiful powerplaces
  • indulging in knowledge and wisdom of indigenous peoples
  • experiencing practical and immediately applicable exercises and reflections to sharpen your self-awareness
  • learning to read nature and ourselves
  • nourishing ourselves with culinary delights from the region.

In harmony with nature, you learn to sharpen your senses to always have orientation in your life. Such sharpened perception of our senses is the conscious balance to the increasing digitization of our life and work.

That is freedom.

Retreat Journey

Overcoming boundaries, gaining freedom

 

Are you standing at a crossroads in your life and asking yourself “Was that all?” “Am I actually LIVING MY life or am I just following something?” “Did I actually live despite of all the work?” “What are my next steps for a meaningful and free life?”” How can I free myself from the constant pressure to perform, and work independently again and with joy?”

If you ask yourself these deep questions, then it’s time for a retreat, where you can experience the unique feeling of freedom, ease and independence while hiking through untouched nature in the Far North. This “walking meditation” is a journey to yourself, where you realize what YOU need in order to master your life challenges even better in the future. So that you are content and happy, in tune with your immediate surroundings.

Indigenous peoples around the world, who have always had to survive under harsh conditions, have always drawn from nature as a source of strength and inspiration. During this hike, we will draw strength and inspiration from nature. We will walk in the footsteps of the Samer, the indigenous people in the north of Norway and Sweden, and experience in personal encounters their wisdom of life passed on from generation to generation.

The number of participants for this trip is limited to 8 persons

Clients testimonials

Michaela Eicher, Lucerne:

«The retreat was like a little time and culture trip. Gerlinde has the wonderful gift of networking people and nature. Suddenly you run across the soft moss in the forest wondering when you did that last and how on earth you could lose this access. The simple and everyday exercises have inspired me a lot. I really have the impression of having internalized the workshop, not just heard, then forgotten. These three days have touched me deeply and connected me to my own roots.»

Markus F. Kaiser, Zurich:

«The challenges in a world of digital speed and increasing pressure for change can bring enormous stress. The retreat with Gerlinde Manz-Christ brought me back to who I am, as part of a whole. Particularly impressive were the stories of Gerlinde from her experiences with the Apache warrior woman “Oh Shinnah”, especially atmospheric at the campfire. The retreat program with many interactive exercises helped, among other things, to an excellent group dynamic. I already integrate two exercises, the sitting spot and the training of my eye muscles, in my everyday life. They help me in coping with stress. I am grateful for having spent this time in the beautiful world of Kristberg in the Montafon valley.»

Beate Brandt, Hamburg:

«The retreat was an amazing experience for me. Everything was right – from the location to the information provided, to the nature walks, and the sensitive leadership of the retreat. I already incorporate the exercises in everyday life and I have memories of beautiful experiences in nature and the group. Thank you, Gerlinde!»

Sandra Vielmetti, Linz/Donau:

«I especially liked the surprise with the chairs in the meadow, which was really exceptional. My intention … to stay in the mountains again has once again manifested itself deeper. Many life themes are presented in a different light on the mountain, I like that. The priorities shift and the voice of the gut feeling gets louder…»
